HBE 321A Dynamic Horizontal Bandsaw

The HBE Saw increased throughput in Spanco’s work center by roughly 20%.

Behringer Saws has announced it recently shipped an HBE 321A Dynamic Horizontal Bandsaw to Spanco Inc., located in Morgantown, PA.

Spanco, a manufacturer of overhead workstation cranes, took delivery in April 2015 of the HBE, which the company uses to saw tube sections for fabricating cranes.

“The Behringer HBE Saw has already increased throughput in our work center by roughly 20% due to faster cycle times and reduced time required for maintenance. It has also substantially improved the accuracy of our cuts,” said Mr. Chris Moke, Production Manager at Spanco.

The HBE Dynamic Horizontal Bandsaw is a versatile, compact automatic saw, featuring an array of leading-edge features designed to improve performance and precision while maximizing user convenience and safety. Ideal for a wide range of application environments from production cutting steel service centers to metalworking job shops, the HBE saw has a rigid dual column cast iron frame and a servo-driven precision downfeed control that automatically adjusts blade pressure, creating an optimal balance of feed rate and pressure for improved quality and cutting rates, while extending blade life.

An electrically powered ball screw-driven material feed gripper eliminates backlash and ensures precise material positioning for improved accuracy. The optional Automatic Feed Control (AFC) feature automatically adjusts cutting parameters such as blade speed and downfeed rate to the material grade and shape, allowing operators to create flexible material programs, leveraging cutting data based on the specific material grade.
